Shutter speed has nothing to do with battery power. If you have a SLR camera you use the shutter speed option when you want to have control of the shutter speed, slow shutter speed means if your taking a picture of a waterfall and you want to see the actual droplets you set a slow shutter speed, if you want it to look more smooth/flowing you set a faster shutter speed, if you do not have a SLR camera you probably dont have much say so in shutter speed...

Shutter repair


Just out of curiosity, are the batteries in the correct direction? When you half-press the shutter release button, does the meter needle in the viewfinder move?

I can't count the number of times I've put the batteries in the wrong direction on my own FE. I've never damaged the camera, and it works fine when I reverse the batteries.

Shutter release button on my F3 is stuck (locked) and shutter speed is locked at 1/60. Works fine when camera is attached to a motor drive, but not otherwise.


Hi,
When the batteries in an F3 die, though the film can still be advanced, the photographer is limited to a single mechanical shutter speed of approximately 1/60 second. It is tripped by a secondary fully mechanical shutter release. Works fine when camera is attached to a motor drive because it uses the drivers power...Pls replace the batteries as one of the following is okay.....
  • Battery: Choice of one 3V lithium battery CR-1/3N type,,
  • two 1.55V silver-oxide batteries SR-44 type, or
  • two 1.5V alkaline batteries LR-44 type
Hope this helps!
Take care and please

I installed new batteries in my camera. I turn the on knob and camera does not operate. Something wrong with power system Contacts are clean, new batteries Nikon N2020


"Turn the on knob"? You turn on the N2020 by lightly pressing the shutter release button. Do the meter indicator LEDs inside the viewfinder light up when you lightly press the shutter release button?

The shutter release button will not fire. every once in a while it will shoot but most of the time it does not release and take the photo.


The most obvious cause is a failing battery. Your camera has a magnetic shutter release which needs a good battery to work. A tired battery will have a marginal voltage which might not always be adequate to release the shutter. Change the battery to see if there is an improvement, you should use 1 x 4SR44 cell.

If that fails, you may have a dirty shutter magnet but it's rare on the AE-1. If the battery doesn't fix your fault then please report back for guidance regarding shutter magnet maintenance.

That camera needs tobe services. The IC2 is the technicians code that tells where to start. With the problems you describe it would be best ot let a technician overhaul and recalibrate it if possible. then you will have a camera that operates like new.

I followed the instructions in the manual, and put new batteries in + side up. Then I continued with the rest of that step, but I did not see a flashing red LED light anywhere. I do not understand what to...


A few things to try, based on my FG's operation: - The most obvious- are your batteries good? Correct type? If they are: - When all is well the red LED metering lights will appear in the viewfinder window on the right side, in the range of shutter speed numbers. - The red LED metering lights are only activated when you press the shutter release button (halfway). The lights go out after a few seconds if the shutter button is not held down. Just tap the shutter button to reactivate them. - The shutter speed setting dial must NOT be on B (Bulb) or M90 (non-electronic Manual mode) if you want to see the red LED metering lights. The lights do not operate on these two settings because metering is irrelevant here (you'd be doing the metering, not the camera). - If you're in P (Program mode) the lens aperture must be set all the way to the smallest setting (usually f22 or f16, depending on the lens). If not, you'll only see blinking lights at the top and bottom of the shutter speed range on the right in the viewfinder. That's a reminder to set the lens to the smallest (highest numeric) aperture.
Hope these help. The FG is a great little camera.
